Nicki Minaj Becomes Lil Wayne in Birdman’s ‘Y.U. Mad’ Video

Nicki Minaj, Birdman, and Lil Wayne

Nicki Minaj tried on her Halloween costume early while shooting the Gil Green-directed video for “Y.U. Mad” with Birdman and Lil Wayne in Miami last week. The “female Weezy” mimicked her mentor’s mannerisms and style, sporting long blonde dreads, a wifebeater, boxers pulled above her camouflage pants, and a diamond-studded chain and watch.

She remained silent as Birdman explained how the song came to be the first single from his upcoming album Bigga Than Life, due November 21. “Nicki gave me that song. She called me one day like, ‘Stunna, I got a record for you I think you would like,’” the Cash Money CEO told MTV News. “I jumped on it and put my son on it. I liked it from the start. Working with Nicki is just special anyway and I felt good about it, so we rocked with it.”

The song is not be taken literally. “I don’t think no one is actually mad. It’s just a figure of speech,” explained Wayne as Nicki began to laugh. “I think Nick just sounded good saying mad at that point in the song. I don’t think it would’ve been cooler if she said, ‘That’s why you glad.’ We have to ask her next time I see her.”

Witness Weezy and his female counterpart on set below.

    @Jasmine, Lmaoo but Nicki’s been in the Game goin on 4 Years now. She came in 09′ still snatching Wigs with the records she’s breaking and she still has a Tour on the way, She has MAC, OPI, and a Fragrence coming out, And TONS of New music. So this “Gimmick” isn’t goin no where soon. You SHOULD worry about your favorite lmao “Spend A Mill” doesn’t seem to have charted ANYWHERE. It wasn’t even released to iTunes. Lmaoo Po’ Kim.
